Here at Life Explained we are big, big sports fans. We enjoy the thrill of competition, the noble pursuit of victory, the never ending chase of perfection. And, we enjoy it from our couches and recliners, with a big plate of nachos, and a couple of beers. We were particularly excited for this years cold, and flu season. It is a wide open race to the top seed in the cold and flu playoffs!
The last couple of seasons there was a clear favorite to win the cold and flu championship. A lead pipe lock to the cold and flu title. Not this year, it is a whole new game. Sure, there are a couple of heavy hitters that look like they could go all the way. But, it could be the year of the underdog.
The bird flu (H5N1, for those of you with a score card) is looking pretty tough, but what do you expect from a group of creatures that figured out how to fly thousands of years ago. You know they are always going to come up with a contender. It is always a safe bet.
But, the swine flu (H1N1, if you are thinking of looking at the latest line from Vegas) is making a late season run, too. Trust me, pigs really know how to generate some germy stuff, including virus'. Just grab yourself a BLT, and check out the nearest pig pen. They are, at the very least, unsanitary, and probably worse, filthy, (as a side note, my mother always said my room at home was the worst looking pig sty she had ever seen, when pressed for details she assured me it was a very complicated grading process, one I would never understand). It is obvious hygiene means little to the average swine.
Anyway, it is a very exciting season, and we have started a pool. Anybody can play, just send your completed bracket and $5.00 to us at;

There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
